This memorandum reports on investigation into characteristics of taxi trips as part of GLTS. It details sources of data, method used to prepare data for analysis, validation against Thames screenline counts and expansion to 1972 traffic levels. It presents results of analysis of trips with origin to destination (o-d) matrices for taxi-cabs and passengers, with additional matrices for British Rail termini in the cnetral area. It gives trip length distribution by time and distance, distribution of trips during the day, variations in passenger occupancy by time of day and length of trip, and the distribution of shift working hours. Results are compared with those from lts in terms of total trips, distribution within the day and distribution between areas of London. /TRRL/
